But let me point out some things for you:
1) Bush was President during 9-11 and the entire creation of Homeland Security. Love it, hate it, it was done; and GB had some good economic times from 2003-2007 when pay increases were expected.
2) We keep hearing how Obama inherited job losses of 700K per month, and that the job losses that kept happening for at least a year after he became Presbo were not his fault. But the pay increases that more than doubled the number of employees making over $150K since Obama took office, at a time when the rest of America was hemmorhaging jobs and income, are all Obama. While the country was in this massive tail-spin in the private sector, Obama was handing out candy to government employees.
